In Topic: How Long Does Silicone Last

06 December 2018 - 07:57 PM

When you say failed, do you mean that the silicone failed?
I’ve never seen a major silicone failure. A couple cracked tanks but no actual issues with the silicone.
There’s not much pressure put on silicone seems. Keep tanks level and theoretically not a lot that can go wrong.
With the degradation of silicone I suppose it depends on exposure to UV, chemicals, etc.

Anyone else seen total failure of silicone joint?

Not having a go at people... more a reflection of how quiet the forum has become.

Honestly I dunno. There’s been no change. Other fins look good which probably rules out environmental issues.
Sort of a weird place to be injured.
Still got me stumped.

Some very big short finned eels at Atlantic Seafoods in Northbridge.
Freshwater morays haven’t been seen in a while. The one I had was great. No dramas in full fresh... I know two other guys that lost theirs in the first 2 weeks. $500 losses.
